  • What's your weak link?

    Wondering what exercises people struggle with the most, gains wise. Mine is definitely shoulder presses. I currently workout 3x5 with 135. I do have a little shoulder issue which makes progress even slower!!!!

    How about you guys?

        Shoulder/overhead press for me too. I've been doing them for months now and still don't feel like I have a good handle on the form. And progress on them has been reeeally slow. Much slower than any other lift.

              I'll just add that progress on the Overhead press will always be slower than on any other major lift - it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a weak link

                  Squats are definitely the most intimidating in my book. Sometimes I walk into the gym and just own the bar, other times, it owns me.

                      Shoulders- they always seem to burn much fasterbthan my other muscles. And I hate the T-plank. Horrid.

                        shoulders, triceps and quads are my weakest muscles

                        yeah you are

                        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                          My grip is holding me back- I do Convict Conditioning, and both abs and pullups require decent grip strength. I could hit both of those exercises harder if I could hang on to the bar a little longer.

                          It affects my squat, too, actually. I have the bowflex adjustable dumbbells, and I add extra weight in a bag on my back if I need it, but hanging on to those dumbbells can be an issue at the "heavier" weights I'm using for squats.

                          Also, my love for my wife's homemade pie. That doesn't help.

                            I do Convict Conditioning. My weak link is definitely hip flexors. Having a hard time getting past level one. My hip flexors are also very tight and I started stretching and that seems to have helped some. Seems I hit the lactic acid burn long before the muscles give out.

                            Any suggestions?
